Wednesday website and Workshop Pins

It's late (I can't give up any quality visiting time with my family) but it's still Wednesday for another hour so here we go.

First up a quick website for 

A fun versatile site as have as grade level and purpose is Kerpoof. Students can make pictures, stories, movies, etc. all within one site. There are a variety of possibilities with suggested grade levels for each section. There is even a teacher sections with lesson plans and other ideas. As a teacher you can easily create logins for your students and then print up little ID type cards for them. It is certainly a great starting point for some digital storytelling. I don't have them time to go into all the different sections but go check it out.
